Heads up guys. The ASUS RealBench Challenge kicks off once more on OC-ESPORTS in exactly one week from today with the arrival of Challenge III. Just to remind you about the contest’s structure, it is divided into four separate rounds, or Challenges, each with specific rules and limitations. A few weeks ago we saw conclusion of Challenge II with French overclocker Wizerty clocking up his second win of the contest. It will be interesting to see if he can keep his winning streak going in Challenge III.
Kicking off on October 28th, Challenge III will run until November 7th and offers a slightly different challenge from the first and second challenges as processors are in fact limited to two cores only. Combatants can still use any CPU, but they must ensure that only two cores are active when running the benchmark. As with the previous challenges, no Socket 2011-3 processors (X99 platforms) are allowed and hardware cooling is restricted to non-extreme methods i.e. CPUs must be shown to be over 20 degrees Celsius.
Don’t forget that the contest is open to HWBOT members from all leagues. Combatants must use the custom HWBOT version of the RealBench app. A more complete listing of all the rules, limitations and scoring can be found here. Remember, prizes are awarded to the winners at the end of each Challenge, but don’t forget that the main prizes on offer includes next-generation ROG motherboards for the top three finishers. Challenge III prizes include an ROG Sheath gaming mouse pad, plus an ROG Spatha gaming mouse.
